Data transfer speeds VISUALIZED

As the internet has become a common part of the world, it has become easy to take for granted just how fast that information is transferred.  Perhaps a comparison between some other things that are notoriously quick can grant some perspective.

Revisualizing the Petabyte

We’re big fans of infographics here at Mozy (evidence: mozy.com/blog/infographics and mozy.com/infographics). In 2009 we produced an infographic titled “How Much is a Petabyte?“. This post has been extremely popular, and accounts for about 15% of all traffic to the Mozy blog. It has bounced around between the 2nd and 4th position on the first page of Google search results for “petabyte”.

We’ve produced an update to that original graphic. This new infographic is interactive, meaning it changes as you scroll down. There are also places where you can change the data shown by using sliders. This is the first one we’ve done, and we’re pretty excited about it. We hope you like it as well. We’ve got more planned! View the infographic in it’s entirety here.

Ode to the IT Pro

With this infographic, Mozy offers an appreciative “Ode to the IT Pro”. We celebrate those hard working individuals who tackle our BIOS issues and listen sympathetically while we tell them how we forgot our password or can’t remember what we need to do to get our office email on our cell phone.

One way to look at IT pros is to compare them to a car mechanic. If your engine is broken, you can somtimes still roll down the windows or listen to the radio, but you’re not going to get anywhere, and you’re going to need a lot of help to get things right. The IT team in your company has the knowledge they need to take care of all of your tech problems, big or small. The IT role has become increasingly complicated with policies like BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), laptops (taking a computer to and from work and on the road can be tough on the hardware), and employees using all sorts of backup and file sharing tools to collaborate, potentially exposing sensitive company data.

Without these hardworking individuals, much of the work that we’re able to do on a daily basis would grind to a halt, slowed by error messages, malware, email issues, and a WiFi password that nobody knows. IT professions often work in the shadows, climbing under your desk to figure out why your mouse isn’t working, or taking a flashlight to the server room to see if they can find that file you need from four years ago. They don’t often get the recognition and praise that a position like theirs deserves. That changes today – IT pros, this one’s for you!

What’s in a Meme?

Memes on the Internet are like puddles on the sidewalk after a rainy day – if you don’t look where you’re going, you’ll step right in one before you know it. So what is a “meme”, exactly? And how do you pronounce it? What goes into a successful meme (and how long has humanity been… “meme-ing”?) Our latest infographic takes a look at this technology phenomenon that has grown up with the digital generation. So sit back, relax, grab a cheeseburger and peruse the important Internet history of laughing cats, dancing baby emails, and first world problems.

Food Trucks and Social Media

Whether they’re hawking donuts, tacos, Mexican food or fish, food trucks have started to become commonplace in many cities in the United States. Coinciding with the increase in the number of food trucks is the ubiquity of social media. Given that food trucks often move to multiple locations during the day, outlets like Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, and Instagram are the perfect tools to help hungry customers find the meal they’re looking for. These apps also lend themselves to telling the stories of these trucks, with great pictures of food on the grill, check-ins from trucks that have just parked and are open for business, and posts with the schedule for the upcoming week. Without these tools, it’d be much more difficult for food trucks to connect with their audience, especially because they’re often open for business in different locations each week.

Backing Up Celebrities

Roll out the red carpet… Mozy is star struck! With both the Grammys and the Oscars taking place during the month of February, we’ve got celebrities on the mind. We’re big fans of the entertainers and artists whose work we celebrate and honor at these two events, and (while we’re on that topic) we still can’t believe that Saving Private Ryan didn’t win Best Picture in 1999.

As their songs and movies pile up, the space needed to store the works of these artists digitally is only increasing. So take a look… which of this year’s Academy Awards nominees would take up the most hard drive space? Which Grammy winner needs the most USB drives to store all of their albums?
